I'm just getting up to date books for the assessment so I gather all I need is bgb and the osg as I can download hs25 , do I need guidance note3, I have heard elecsa like members to have "electricians guide to building regs" is that right?
 
think they sent me a copy in my assessment pack
But i also have it on the laptop jsut have the laptop document open and show him that or print it yourself if you have a printer

dont need GN3 unless you going for the PIR assessment as well
the elecys guide to building regs is required well its stated as required but wether they pull you on it dont know but you will get questions on it so good to have

If I were you I would download them all and become familiar with them. It can only make you better at your job.

Maybe as the NIC seem to think they make up the rules, BUT the Elecsa Assessor will expect you to have a copy printed out for your first assessment and every subsequent year too.

You won't be asked to see a copy or even if you own a copy of GN3 on your assessment as it's not a requirement.
That's not to say you shouldn't have one though, it's a gripping read.

You don't need the guide to the Building Regs either.

You will get a pack containing a printout of part P, along with various other documents required which you can alter with your company name.

No harm in ringing them. What has impressed me about Elecsa is that they are always willing to help and advise.

To be honest I chose them after speaking to all the schemes elecsa seemed the most friendly , willing to help , and not try to sell me crap I don't need like pir assessment! They talked me out of it! And alot of top sparks I know are with them!

The one I received from elecsa is just a badly photocopied one with a wonky staple.

I downloaded printed in colour and placed into it's own wallet.

That will be acceptable - they will probably give you 'brownie' points for sourcing it yourself.

Quite agree mate. NICEIC didn't even return my first email, so that didn't bode well.
What really, really impresses me about Elecsa is the technical help if and when you need it... quick phone call to helpdesk, they put you straight through to one of their electricians and you can chat about anything you need clarifying.

Well I was on the phone to nic for 5 napit for about 10 and elecsa for 45!!! Speaking to the technical department!! As you say they will talk to you about anything do you think they would be able to advise me on what sauce goes best on a sausage sarnie? Personally I like red !!!
